    TEI 309: Product management strategy

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you the next episode of...

    The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD.

    The podcast is all about helping people involved in innovation and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.

    About the Episode: 

    I started a new series to explore the Product Development and Management Body of Knowledge. While it has since been updated many times, this is the body of knowledge I discovered in 2007 that led to many ah-ha moments for me as a product manager. It gave me a framework for integrating what a product manager does, and I have since taught it to many other product managers. 

    Every-other-week we are exploring one of the 7 knowledge areas. Today we are discussing strategy. This is the foundation for product managers as organizational strategy impacts product strategy. By aligning the two, we create more value for the organization and accelerate our careers in the process. 

    Our guest is Dr. Allan Anderson, past chairman of PDMA and the person who led the development of the first and second editions of the Body of Knowledge. He has had a long career in product management, primarily in food products, and is professor emeritus at Massey University New Zealand. He also joined us two weeks ago, providing an overview of the entire Body of Knowledge. Today, we focus on strategy.

    TEI 307: Introduction to the PDMA Body of Knowledge for product managers and inn

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you the next episode of...

    The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD.

    The podcast is all about helping people involved in innovation and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.

    About the Episode:

    In 2007, I studied for the New Product Development Professional certification from PDMA, the Product Development and Management Association. I wanted to learn what PDMA, the longest running professional association for product managers and innovators, said about product management.

    Seeing how they organized the many aspects of product management and made connections between them was a huge ah-ha moment for me. I saw my work more clearly and holistically.

    I found it so helpful, that after earning the NPDP certification, I created a virtual training program to help others learn the body of knowledge as well and earn the certification. Coupled with a PhD in Innovation, that is what got me started teaching product and innovation management.

    PDMA’s body of knowledge is updated every three years now. It reflects relevant practices, tools, processes, and concepts that the best organizations use based on the most credible research and the deep knowledge of expert practitioners.

    This is the start of an 8-part series to explore the Body of Knowledge. I’m publishing the series every-other week, with interviews on other topics in between. Each part of the series is with one of the 7 authors who contributed to the second edition.

    Today we are joined by Dr. Allan Anderson, past chairman of PDMA and the person who led the development of the first and second editions of the Body of Knowledge. He has had a long career in product management, primarily in food products, and is professor emeritus at Massey University New Zealand.

    TEI 306: Accomplish twice as much in half the time

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you the next episode of...

    The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD.

    The podcast is all about helping people involved in innovation and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.

    About the Episode: 

    Would you like to get more done? Product managers are pulled in many directions, and if you are like others, you struggle to get the most important things done, let along everything you are asked to do. 

    Our guest knows a lot about this. He was an intrapreneur in large organizations. He got tired of being “busy” all day and having little to show for it. When he started his own company, he needed to learn how to actually work, and what he learned was how to get twice as much done in half the time. That is something I want, and I bet you do, too. 

    He is still involved in innovation, as he co-founded Collective Campus, a corporate innovation accelerator. His name is Steve Glaveski and we discuss his system for getting more accomplished in less time. He also has written about the system in his recent book, Time Rich.

    TEI 305: Become a product naming champ

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you the next episode of...

    The Everyday Innovator with host Chad McAllister, PhD.

    The podcast is all about helping people involved in innovation and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.

    About the Episode: 

    Not many product managers get involved in naming products, and that is a mistake. If you were involved during the initial idea work and problem solving—creating a product concept that fulfills customers’ unmet needs—then you have valuable insights for the product name. You can be a great brainstorming resource to help Marketing or a naming consulting. 

    That is, if you know the attributes of a great name, how to avoid naming mistakes, how to use a creative brief, and how to effectively brainstorm. Those topics and more are in a new book titled Hello, My Name Is Awesome: How to Create Brand Names That Stick. The author is Alexandra Watkins and she joins us to discuss many of these topics so you can become a product naming champ. 

    Alexandra has created names or renamed many brands and products you would recognize, including the Wendy’s Baconator. She has many great tips for us that take the mystery out of naming.

    About the Episode: 

    I’m often asked by product managers on their journey to product master what books they should read. I have a new one to recommend. It covers a broad perspective helpful to less experienced product managers all the way to those who are leading other product managers. It covers: 
    How to think like a product manager, How to have influence in an organization, Several specific tactics that extend from idea through product launch, and A plan for structuring your career growth. 
    The book is The Influential Product Manager and it was written by our guest, Ken Sandy. Ken has over 20 years of experience in technology product management. He served as VP of Product Management at online education companies, MasterClass and lynda.com, and is currently an advisor for startup and scale-up companies.

Good content

I find the interviews and content good, only challenge is the unrelated ads which don’t make sense!

Informative for Product People

Covers the gamut of issues relevant to people managing products from all perspectives and industries. Might be partial to software products, but attempts to be inclusive across all industries and domains. Like a weekly lesson. Some are more philosophical and strategic than others.

Amazing guests but poor interviewers and format

The guests are some of the best contributors and thought leaders in the market. However the hosts have poor interviewing skills with leading questions, personal biases and talk over the guests. The most annoying episode was rich mironov (he's amazing) but that the hosts were typing on their keyboard so loudly that the guest had to yell over the clacking of keyboards. One of the other hosts sounded like he was traveling on a train while dialing in.
